I was hoping to be on track again just now but unfortunately the eunos failed its MOT, fortunately it was only on the emissions and a ball joint boot... both kind of expected! I'll be changing both lower front ball joints this weekend and I guess re-fitting the cat...
The last track day was another good one, I'm getting more confident with the car and the brakes now, the breathing mods seemed to help a bit but having a passenger for the session quite literally outweighed any gains! I can certainly confirm the randall style intake is loud though - can barely hear the exhaust in the car now.
My attempts to kill off the tyres were poor too, I just seemed to collect other peoples rubber and use that:
They would've lasted plenty more trackdays by the looks of it but I'm to keen to try out these and see what improvement they bring:
Hopefully sticky Yokohama AD08R's, I was originally going to try the Nankang NS2R's but with the hill climb class I'm looking to enter now allowing any MSA Group 1B tyre I wanted to try these since they should give good grip from cold.
At the same time I also decided to get the wheels re-done, one of the fronts had brake dust baked on it and the previous owner hadn't done a great job painting them:
So they were powdercoated a nice anthracite colour and the new yoko's fitted:
Back on the eunos they look suitably purposeful:
Due to the mot failure I've only done about 2 miles on them (to and from the test centre) and even worse than that I may now be selling them as another set of wheels have caught my eyes....
